Hey everyone, I just received a letter from Nashville State for an interview for nursing. Just wondering if anyone else has gotten a letter or has already been through the interview process. I'm hoping I get accepted for the Fall... Read More

    Hi guys

    I went to Nscc's nursing program and I encourage you all to look elsewhere. I was in my last clinical rotation and they wrongfully failed me due to a teachers error. By the time I appealed, and won and was allowed to go to class it was too late to save my grades so I could continue on with a BSN at mtsu. My goal is practitioner. I was granted permission to withdraw and am now in the accredited BSN program at mtsu.
    nscc does not respect when you stand up for your student rights and ...policy for students is only meant to protect school not the student.
    Mtsu is awesome, not run like a prison camp and very structured and organized with a large student nurse affiliation. Our voices are respectfully heard. Nscc is not accredited and if and when they are I am not so sure it will last if they keep this behavior up. Follow me on Facebook and twitter to read the whole story with exactly what happened. Unless Nscc cleans house, they are not a choice for any student expecting to get a fair and rewarding nursing experience.

    And education is also what YOU make of it. You can't expect to go into classes like A&P and micro and not have to work for it. You may not have the best instructor, you may not have all the information you need....BUT there is always a way to find it and achieve your goals. This is a second career for me and I am absolutely sick of students expecting things to be handed to them without working for it. NSCC is a perfectly acceptable school and will be accredited this summer. If you don't make the grades or fail out of class maybe you should look back and find what YOU did wrong. Stop blaming others for what you lack.

    Hi Ms Morris, I understand your view and I can respect that you would not want to believe that NSCC could be capable of any wrong doing. But what I reported is true and I have responsibly reported my story to the Board of Regents and all pertinent parties. Now I am warning other students to avoid the nursing program at NSCC until they respectfully comply with state and federal regulations, especially their own policy. After I was dismissed from NSCC's nursing program, I followed the appeals process and won my appeal to be readmitted. I did nothing wrong. The appeals process took too long and there was only two weeks left of school. I responsibly withdrew because I had to so I could save my grades and attend nursing school elsewhere. I sought legal help to fight for a refund. I immediately got accepted into an accredited nursing program offering the BSN. It is night and day compared to NSCC. Nursing is a wonderful career and I am well on my way now to finishing school but I am learning in the proper manner with well trained teachers and solid policy. Students need to feel comfortable filing complaints when teachers are wrong. I made a huge sacrifice but I still have my integrity.

    Hi,
    The pre-req training for nursing was great at NSCC. I completed the Surgical Technology program several years ago and can highly recommend it as well. My poor experience was with the RN nursing program's faculty in general and the way the appeals process went.

    April 11 and no request to interview letter. 3.7 GPA. All pre-reqs completed (A&P II and an elective complete in May) . I'm bummed.

    2baggettfamilyof5, you are not the only one I have heard of with your GPA with pre-req's completed that did not get a letter. My friend cannot even find out why she did not get a letter. I wish you the best of luck.

    Well. I got a rejection letter today. Apparently they took everyone that had already completed ALL of their prerequisites. I suppose just having your math and sciences completed by December was not enough to get in. I was really bummed when I got the letter today! I worked really hard and now I will have to wait another year to try to get into Nashville State. My only other option is to retake the ACT and reapply to Columbia State if I increase my ACT score. I am also going to apply to TSU next year. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have a 4.0, and I am only taking my english, an elective, and speech class and it is very discouraging but....I will persevere!! I have no choice! I am going to take a CNA course and hopefully start working in a hospital in the next couple months just for the experience and to get my foot in the door...... who knows what the future holds. Perhaps I will get into a better school and this is just the universe's way of telling me to keep looking...... GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!!
